Things you want to accomplish in 2006

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Dec 23, 2005.

  1. Im not sure if theres a thread like this or not, anyway, might aswell try, what do you want to accomplish in 2006?

    Ive got 5 main ones:

    1) Move out/get flat
    2) Stop being single (altho, thats up to the tides of fate)
    3) Get a decent gigging band on the go
    4) Get rid of the excess muscular insulation
    5) Learn to drive (which, will be hard, maybe a summer thing to try and do?)

    I want to do well in uni, but ive been doing fine the past couple of years so i didnt add that

    What about you chaps/chapettes?

    Play more bass.

    Worry less about deadline.

    Get better at working quickly and accurately. I can do one or the other right now.

    Forget about my body image. I'm not fat, I'm not skinny. I just need to get over it.

    Patch up my relationship with my girl. After a year and someodd, it's a bit stale.

    Learn to drive my stickshift without bucking off the line at green lights. (Actually, this falls under just being less tense.)

    Stop sharing my emotions with those that don't deserve them.

    Smoke more pot.
